A popular wood-fired pizza joint is opening its second Ellicott City location in U.S. 40’s Forest Green shopping center at the end of the summer.
River House Pizza Co. began serving artisanal pies outside a 19th-century building in historic Ellicott City (3741 Hamilton St.) in March 2015, but owner Nathan Sowers says that he wanted to find a location that was more central for residents.
“We kind of outgrew our space, and we’re looking to get more exposure in this new space as well as more preparation space and indoor seating,” Sowers says.
The restaurant, which also sells pizzas at farmers’ markets in Olney and at the Miller Branch Library, gets most of its ingredients locally, from Love Dove Farms in Woodbine and TLV Farm in Glenelg.
